I have a new Tikka T3 in .308. It shoots as it is supposed to with 1" groups with factory ammo. All fine excepting the front sling stud is not locked up and tightens firm past its proper position affecting the sling and keeps coming loose- at the wrong moment. It needs about 170 deg. of turn to lock on the other side. I do not want to do this if it will strip the sling stud or worse. Any thoughts? It is small but very annoying. I could just bond it in but may want to use a bipod in future.
